Chatting with Vera the other day on all sorts of management styles; we came across one she had never heard of before: Seagull Management.
At first she thought I was kidding, but after googling the term we discovered that there are 632.000 results on this entry and that it is even featured on Wikipedia.
And this is all because there is one little sentence in the book The One Minute Manager that describes the term: “Seagull managers fly in, make a lot of noise, dump on everyone, then fly out.”
Regular readers of this blog are already familiar with the grumpy boss. Now you know what his birdlike equivalent would look like. What’s more interesting is that this conversation made me take the dust off my copy of the One Minute Manager, so I’ll be blogging on that one pretty soon.
